  • Cook chops, cabbage and squash in 1/4 cup of the dressing in large skillet 15 minutes or until chops are cooked through and squash is tender, stirring occasionally and turning chops over after 8 minutes.
  • Add apples, remaining 1/4 cup dressing, orange juice and gingerroot; mix well. Simmer 5 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally.

Food Facts

Apples good for both cooking and eating raw are called all-purpose apples. Keep some on hand for your favorite fall recipes. These varieties include Cortland, Fuji, Granny Smith, Jonathan, McIntosh, Northern Spy and Winesap.

Food Facts

Choose squash which are heavy for their size with a hard deep-colored rind, free of blemishes or moldy spots. The hard skin of winter squash helps to protect the flesh, allowing it to be stored longer than summer squash. Butternut squash has a smooth skin and resembles a tan elongated pear. These squash have a moist sweet orange pulp and range in weight from 1/2 to 3 pounds.

    This is just simply great tasting. I will make this often.

    I thought I'd take a chance with this recipe, even though it sounded kind of strange to me too. First off, it was MUCH more trouble to make than it sounds - (mainly peeling and slicing the squash). I still hoped it would be worth it since it seemed so nutritious. Well, it 's only nutritious if it gets eaten. My family ate the pork chops, but none of the rest. I am a squash and cabbage lover and even I didn't care for this.

    I never would have made this recipe, because it looked kind of strange and had that one negative review, but I had pork chops for dinner, and happened to have a squash and cabbage that I needed to use soon. We were pleasantly surprised by the dish, and husband went back for more, while the baby chomped away on the apple/vegetable mixture. Will definitely make again.
